Artificial Intelligence, Architecture, and Storytelling

PLAYING MODELS aims to address the fundamental conceptual and technological shifts that AI and computational storytelling instruments (AR/VR) have introduced to design and engineering disciplines and how they are transforming millennia-old traditions of architecture and design thinking. The conference questions Beaux-Arts and Bauhaus-Modernist design pedagogies and post-industrialization design approaches aspiring to efficiency and optimization. It entertains the idea that given an adequate theoretical framing, AI and computational storytelling instruments (AR/VR) offer a novel, less constricting interpretation of today's technological reality, fundamentally different from big tech's efficiency and automation narratives.
